Here in Florida, they are practically giving strawberries away. We had an unusually cold winter which delayed the strawberry crops. Usually in January Florida is the main strawberry provider for the country…but since they were delayed and being sold now, the same time as California strawberries, the market is saturated. Thus giving us really cheap strawberries. I’m not complaining.
This is a great light dessert. It reminds me a little of Eclair Cake because of it’s cream puff base. This has a hint of orange that gives it a fresh spring feel. Yes, more orange zest. That’s what happens when you buy a huge carton from Costco.
I actually made this for the missionaries who were helping John with the yard. I wanted to taste it but how ghetto would it be to give it to them with a slice missing. Lucky for me the container I sent this home with them in was a little too small so I had to cut a big piece out to make it fit. John and I gobbled it up and he said, “Why didn’t we keep more?!!”
